Celia McMahon is the author of the magical, YA fantasy UNSPOKEN!
Isabelle Rowan is a princess of the New Kingdom, sheltered and privileged, but forced to step up her role after her older brother dies in war. On the other side of the mountains, Fray Castor, A Voiceless, cursed people of Old Kingdom, abandons a life of rebellion to work at Stormwall Castle. When Isabelle is attacked outside of her home, Fray rescues her but not before she sees something she shouldn’t have seen. Determined to prove she’d seen forbidden magic, she plots with the Voiceless servant to uncover her father the king’s secrets.
Isabelle’s task becomes complicated when she finds herself falling for Fray. Even more so when she discovers the unsettling truth behind the Voiceless curse-that her father purposely used a poison to render their voices mute and forced their allegiance. They possess a great magic that transforms them into massive wolves called Gwylis and they’re set to march on Stormwall in an act of revenge. For Fray to aid her, she must find a cure to return his voice. Only then can he become a Gwylis. As Isabelle battles her growing feelings for Fray-a feeling that could mean changing everything she’s ever known, she twists in the coils of duty and love. If she chooses Fray she will lose more than her royal title-she will lose her life.
Heather Kindt is the author of the inventive, epic NA contemporary fantasy THE WEAVER, a planned series of three.
Most authors control the ending of their story, but most authors are not Weavers.
William Clarke is perfect for Delaney Holden. He’s ambitious, smart, funny, and could easily pose for the cover of a magazine. The only problem for Delaney is that he’s completely unavailable. It isn’t a supermodel girlfriend that stands in the way of eternal bliss, but the pages of a book. Delaney is infatuated with a character in the historical fiction novel she’s writing, but at the moment, her imaginary boyfriend is the least of her concerns.
The worries of the average girl in college revolve around making it into the right sorority, finding a hot guy to date, and keeping her credit card balance in check. Delaney has another worry to add to this list. When she is attacked in the subway by Jonas Webb, the scoundrel in her book, a family secret starts to unravel changing her ordinary college life into an unbelievable fantasy. She discovers that she is a Weaver.
Delaney’s ability as a Weaver bridges the narrow gap between imagination and reality, bringing her words to life. She is suspended between the reality of a teenage girl’s life and the fantasy of her writing. The two genres clash when Jonas reveals that he has a whole different ending planned for her book that involves killing the man she loves. Delaney finds herself in a situation where she must use her writing to save the people closest to her by weaving the most difficult words she will ever write.
